Las Vegas Weekend Concert Photography: Kris Kristofferson

This weekend I had the opportunity to photography Kris Kristofferson. It was a very intimate performance—just him and his guitar playing in a smaller sized, but sold-out, theater.  Kristofferson doesn't play Vegas very often, let alone perform—the last time he played here was in the early 90's—so it's no surprise both of his shows at in the Orleans Casino showroom were sold out.

There really is something to be said for a 75 year old artist who can take the stage solo, and captivate an audience, but that's exactly what Kristofferson did.  The sounds from his guitar are simple and melodious; his lyrics are world famous.  His fans burst in to applause as he sang many of his best known songs.

While I initially thought of him as a country music performer, I was pleasantly surprised that the majority of the songs performed by Kristofferson were of the Folk genre.  It was an amazing experience to be able to photograph Kris Kristofferson and listen to him perform.
